New Attack at Karachi Airport

Less than two days after an attack on Karachi’s airport that left more than 30 dead, the Pakistan’s Taliban led a fresh assault on a security academy at the airport. A group of gunmen on motorbikes opened fire on a camp run by the Airports Security Force (ASF) less than half a mile from the previous attack on Pakistan’s busiest airport. The army said there were three or four attackers, while the ASF said there were two. The number of casualties is unclear, although a Reuters reporter witnessed at least four ambulances at the scene. Pakistani Taliban spokesman Shahidullah Shahid said “We accept responsibility for another successful attack against the government. We are successfully achieving all our targets and we will go on carrying on many more such attacks.”
